We open on a sunny day. I crawl painfully into Las Tortugas. I am hungry and tired. I beg for food. Suddenly Viperman launches out of the Wolf River on his bright orange Harley stunt bike screaming the teachings of Jesus Christ our savior. He...More

Enjoyed the authentic flavors of tamales, tacos and limeade. Very fresh! The corn is divine! Not your typical mexican restaurant here. No rice and beans but the place was packed and we got there right as they opened for lunch.

Product is unique and quality of ingredients is higher, justifying the higher price. I wish the atmosphere were conductive to more of a dinner experience. Instead, the counter service makes any meal feel like lunch. It would be great if they would stay open a...More

There is not a bad thing on the menu. Not a fancy place but upscale Mexican food. Fresh farm to table food. Love the food. Love our friends who own it!

Food is fantastic! Be ready for the real thing, not Tex-Mex! It's funny, they even have signs up stating, if you're looking for Tex-Mex or California style, go elsewhere! Only problem is if you're in a hurry at lunch, it gets packed! Well worth the...More

Pepe and Jonathan continue to produce the freshest and most tasteful authentic Mexican food in Memphis. This isn't the rice and beans, combination plate type restaurant. No, it's fine dining in a Mexican deli format. Everything is made to order. And the orders are exquisite....More

Flavorful food with friendly service. The Dehuachinago(fish tacos) are fresh- small servings, but just right. -Quesadilla choriqueso is not what one would expect as a quesadilla like Taco Bell and many main stream restaurants. De Queso fresco Oaxaca is a simple cheese, tomato and lettuce...More
